 Stade Francais are starting to find themselves of something of a dilemma, thanks to their success if the French Top 14 tournament. While vying for top spot in their domestic competition, which to many French clubs is of greater importance than European Rugby Challenge Cup competition, they also find themselves with a chance of progressing to the knockout stage of the Challenge Cup.

Saturday’s home match at the Stade Jean Bouin, Paris shouldn’t provide to many problems, as they face the winless Bucuresti Wolves from Romania. When the teams clashed earlier in the season, the French club were narrow 13-9 victors, although the closeness of that result may be put down to the atrocious conditions in which the fixture was played. That game was the fifth time that the sides have met, with the Frenchmen winning all five fixtures, scoring 21 tries and conceding a mere five.

Stade Francais are currently in third position in the Pool, trailing Newcastle Falcons by five points, and the Newport Gwent Dragons, who they visit next weekend, by six points. A try-scoring bonus point win, would leave them with the decision of how much priority to give their final Pool game, and a potential quarter final place, against the benefit of resting keys players for the challenges in the Top 14 that still await them.
